Daily Mirror, 9 March 2013: Cameron insists families like severely autistic Logan’s would be exempt from the cruel charge. To the cheers of Tory MPs, he announced: ‘Anyone with severely disabled children is exempt from the spare room subsidy.’
But when his mum, Fiona Oxley-Goody heard this, she was astonished and simply could not believe what she was hearing. Fiona has received a letter ordering her to pay £60 extra a month for the home which has been specially-adapted so her son Logan can receive round-the-clock care. That £60 is simply a price she cannot afford. And if she cannot find the money, Logan may have to be parted from her and put into full-time residential care.
